The former Liverpool winger will join former Premier League colleague Cristiano Ronaldo in time for the team’s 2023–24 season opener on August 14th.
Mane, 31, departed Anfield for the German side in the summer of 2022, but he did not have the best of campaign with the Bundesliga champion. At a point, the club had to suspend him after an alleged altercation with teammate Leroy Sané following the team’s Champions League defeat to Manchester City.
